Finduilas was the daughter of Adrahil of Dol Amroth.  In 2976, she was married to Denethor II, the last ruling Steward of Gondor.  She was the mother of Boromir and Faramir.

Finduilas was a beautiful and gentle-hearted woman.  She had a beautiful, blue mantle set with silver stars around the hem and collar, which Faramir gave to Eowyn during his stay in the House of Healing. Faramir speaks fondly of Finduilas and describes her as "a memory of loveliness in far days" and remembers the grief he felt upon her "untimely" death.  She died in 2988, twelve years after marrying Denethor.  It was said that she was unhappy in Minas Tirith and longed to be near the sea that she loved.
